David Suzuki was in the community of Grassy Narrows to sign a memorandum of understanding between the community polluted with mercury, and his foundation.
For years, Grassy Narrows has been pleading with the province of Ontario to help clean up the contamination caused by a now-defunct pulp mill.
People have suffered a number of typical side effects of mercury poisoning and testing done by a Japanese scientist confirmed that is what was poisoning the people in the community.
Then on the day of Suzuki’s visit, Ontario announced $85 million towards cleaning up the waters around Grassy Narrows.
